On January 11, 2013, GMA-7 files formal complaint against Sarah Lahbati for breach of contract. She is now facing multiple court cases.
In a related article published in PEP last January 9, 2013, Atty. Felipe Gozon, the head of GMA Network dispels that Sarah ask for protection and I did not guarantee that I will protect her. Atty Gozon further states he cannot protect anyone who is not telling the truth.
Few days later, she leaves the Philippines to Switzerland despite of her case against her, her reason is to study there but not escaping with her case.
